Latest news

Over 5,000 households in Bristol East are living in fuel poverty, paying an average of £500 more each year than their better-off neighbours to sustain a warm home. Bristol Energy has launched a trial scheme, and I hope it reaches my constituents who need it most.
This week, the Transport Secretary gave the impression that he is trying to wriggle out of the vital electrification works – something which is unacceptable given Bristolians have already suffered through even greater congestion than usual because of the preparatory works.
I have been a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Animal Welfare since I was first elected as the MP for Bristol East in 2005.
Kerry supported a number of amendments during the Committee Stage and voted against the Bill at Third Reading, but it was passed by the House of Commons without amendment.
An independent report – asked for by Bristol's Mayor, Marvin Rees – reviewing the budget deficit at Bristol City Council has found that, under previous Mayor George Ferguson, a culture developed in which ‘contentious decisions [were]… not asked for' in the run up to his failed re-election bid.

@_The_Interwebs_ @BristolPost they just need to submit a better planning application
@_The_Interwebs_ @BristolPost not about migrants; it's about wanting people to become part of community, not quick turnover as in many HMOs
@_The_Interwebs_ @BristolPost it's about wanting decent homes there and not just making quick buck by providing cramped accommodation
@hrtbps @Jambear82 that's a song lyric just waiting to be used
Well done Diane for speaking out. https://t.co/3vIQRP5X6E

The week ahead

Week beginning 6th February and beyond

On Monday Kerry will be speaking at a Youth Climate summit in Bath before heading to Westminster. This week in Parliament will be dominated again by the EU (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill. A plethora of amendments have been tabled, some of which will be debated in the  House of Commons on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and a handful will be voted upon, before the Third Reading of the Bill at close of play on Wednesday. The Bill will then go to the House of Lords. Kerry hopes to find time to post updates on which amendments she is supporting, and the votes, as they are discussed.

Also this week, we have Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport questions, as well as PMQs. There is a Westminster Hall debate calling for a ban on the ivory trade, which many constituents have emailed Kerry about, and Kerry will also be taking part in sessions of the Environmental Audit Committee (on chemicals regulation post-Brexit) and the Environment Food and Rural Affairs Committee (on labour shortages in the food and farming sector). Kerry will also be chairing an Industry and Parliament Trust event, "Lifting the Lid on Food Waste" as well as attending a Bond event on the Sustainable Development Goals, and a Channel 4 breakfast briefing on fake news with Jon Snow.

On Thursday Kerry, having visited the Lush factory in Poole last Thursday, will be attending Day Two of The Lush Summit, to take part in a panel discussion, and meet with lots of campaigners and grassroots organisations. More details here for anyone who might be in London and interested in attending here. Later on the same day Kerry will be speaking at an Intelligence Squared event, "Nature: Our Best Climate Technology". 

Kerry will then be heading to New York to represent the UK at the United Nations annual hearing, which this year is focusing on Sustainable Development Goal 14, protecting our oceans and marine life. She will then be spending the rest of half term recess in Bristol, catching up on constituency work and meetings.
